Drooping leaves can indicate a number of things, notably under watering / over watering / root stress / imbalance in nutrient uptake due to pH or availability so need a bit more info to diagnose bro..

what medium are you in?

what kinda watering / feeding schedule are you on ? 
Are your other plants all getting same inputs? 
Are the stems and petioles (leaf stems) purpling?

Okay they are in Coco and I'm using the Auto Pot system and they are all getting the same feed , it's bigger than the other plants and is closer to the lights

@dobbin ok cool, if the others are ok and they’re all getting the same inputs the bigger plant may just need more (higher EC feed) but can’t be sure from the pics.

Sometimes when plant leaves ‘hook’ it’s a sign of toxicity of some sort or a lockout of a nutrient. 
Overall the plant doesn’t look too bad though. Are all the strains the same ? 

A pic of others for comparison may be of help ..

 sorry I can’t be conclusive

@dobbin I am also very curious about those auto pots. With coco and salt based nutes you need to allow at least 20% runoff through the media to remove the waste products away from the roots. Are you running possibly running amended coco? How old are the plants?

Okay peep's the Auto Pot system works by feeding from the bottom up and they have a valve in the tray that automatically keeps  the tray that the plants sit in filled with water/feeding nutrient's

As far as the autopots go, I don't know anyone successfully using coco and autopots but then again I don't know everything lol. Like I mentioned before, the way I learned to grow in coco requires that you flush waste salts out of the media and autopots won't do this. I am under the impression that autopots are best with soil but no matter because here we are lol

It looks like you are close to flower on the droopy one so I'd apply a foliar application on Epson Salts to the entire plant. Mix the solution at 1 teaspoon per 3 liters water (0.31 grams per cup). Spray the foliage top and bottom till it is completely soaked and let it dry. This will deliver magnesium directly to the plant leaves and help facilitate further nutrient uptake. Magnesium uptake is something that coco isn't extremely good at so this gives them a real good bump. You shouldn't spray the plants that are already in flower but the other 2 will probably appreciate the boost.

Have you any trays buddy and do away with the auto pot feeding system ? Found loads of issues myself with auto feeding and coco , that said your plants look great , the feed system with me didn't soak through all the substraight taking with it the salt deposit , which ultimetly led to lock out , and buds like hay   water from the top ensures that rootball keeps in range and if it goes off , next feed can be to rectify slightly , coco is a shit hot substraight

Right I've just checked out a couple of sites with information on this , yes I know should have done it before I started . And the only thing I've not done is put clay pebbles in the bottom of my pots , it's a Coco perlite mix

@dobbin if you empty out the auto feeder you could use that as a tray if you haven't any , think you could run soil in that there system dont quote me mind have no idea with soil , there's a guide on feed and that here takes coco feeds into account 😉
